New essay: Seven theses on the Fediverse and the becoming of FLOSS
Recently, @rra and I have been working on an essay highlighting questions about the #Fediverse and how these are getting entangled with #FLOSS practices. From software production to structure and governance within alternative social media, online communities and politics.
The text follows a multi theses model, to map the different things we've been looking at and publish the current state of our research.
It is the closing chapter of a new publication from INC/Transmediale (https://networkcultures.org/blog/publication/the-eternal-network)
Feedback welcome. We're planning to publish an online version with more references!

Why Mastodon and the fediverse are “doomed to fail”:
Les Méconnus #1 : LA VOIX DE SON MAÎTRE (NICOLAS PHILIBERT ET GÉRARD MORDILLAT)
"Censuré sous Valéry Giscard d'Estaing et François Mitterrand, le documentaire La Voix de son maître saisit sans fard un discours patronal alors annonciateur de la déferlante néolibérale des années 80."

Among people who know about #XMPP (use, have heard, etc.), how many of you know what the XSF is?
Tomorrow (Tuesday the 30th) @ccl and i will host a workshop around bots as digital infrapuncture. Starting with an opening lecture by Deb Verhoeven (9:15h-10:00h) who proposed to think with the term "digital infrapuncture" about small infrastructural interventions , a combincation of infrastructure and accupunture. After that there will be bot logic exercises (10:00h-13:00h)!
More information can be found on this page: https://www.uu.nl/en/events/online-event-bots-digital-infrapuncture
Or you can register for the opening lecture here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1zDOldVDbjmm8Wa7TKEB9cdDOt3xX94SO1kajNRrMs08/viewform?edit_requested=true#responses [google form]
The event is hosted by Datafied Society & Creative Coding Utrecht
In 2016, Deb Verhoeven described the term digital infrapuncture, where infrapuncture is a portmanteau of "infrastructure" and "acupuncture". Tomorrow she will be speaking about it again. @manetta and I will be thinking through addressing stress points in a digital infrastructure with bot logic during a workshop that follows right after!

🌱 This Sunday, June 28th, there will be another Read & Repair session at #varia! 🌱
The guests for the upcoming Sunday are the custodians of the Digital Solidarity Networks pad (https://pad.vvvvvvaria.org/digital-solidarity-networks). Digital Solidarity Networks started as a listing of tools, practices and readings for convivial digital solidarity amongst individuals, institutions and collectives. The initiative lives as an online collaborative writing space, where people come together to collect and discuss examples of collective digital alternative practices.
You can join us both physically and virtually. Read more about the session here: http://varia.zone/en/rr-digi-soli-networks.html
